On my recent check of the website for signup, it was up and running. And, as Brian Chilson's photos show, lots of Arkansans are anxious to take advantage of help being provided by the Insurance Department. Young people. People with children.

Govt. says 1 MILLION people have visited the website in the last 24 hours.
